So it's that time again, and some people are already busy doing typical new-year promises and future goals lists. I'm no different, but I avoid promises I can't keep and my goals are rather simple when compared with most of the population. As life goes on, I just want to enjoy a growing relationship with … Continue reading Going forward.
Just the other day, someone asked me why I didn't write about my blog on other communities. First, it's bad etiquette to push your own stuff in the house of others. Second, I rather enjoy having a low profile on this hobby. Having a low profile means I can still have fun while doing reviews … Continue reading Why I enjoy having a low profile.
I must admit that I got mixed feelings about reviewing headphones. My problem happens before I start writing, I feel like I'm not good enough to pass along my opinion in a language I don't fully grasp yet. This insecurity isn't new to me but it's still a handicap I often try to vanquish by … Continue reading Reviews and my new approach to the blog.
This is a follow-up Audiophiles please be nice online. Audiophile communities are an amazing way to learn about new gear, new mods and also meet some cool people who enjoy the hobby. Sadly those same harbors of knowledge can be really negative, some members ruin the fun for everyone, be it with constant entitled nagging … Continue reading Why I’m leaving audiophile communities.
I should say that in the past I was very aggressive towards some of the bullshit in the audiophile hobby, these days I'm less inclined to attack fellow audiophiles. It's also no secret I can be very blunt if someone tries to shove pseudoscience up my ass, seriously don't even try it. With that out … Continue reading Audiophiles please be nice online.

Finally had some time to update my blog, mostly trying to comply with the new European Union's privacy laws, the disclaimer is now better and more visible across the blog. I removed the obligation of having to insert an email address on both the contact page and commentary section. It will give me more work with … Continue reading Improving the blog.
My blog is an important part of my life, thus I started this year upgrading my WordPress.com plan to a premium one and "redesigning" my little space on the internet. Until now I'm happy with the changes, even if I still need to improve my photographic skills. I don't have any monetary return from my … Continue reading It’s a new year after all.
When I first started my blog my main idea was to improve my written English and also share some of my opinions, but since then my blogging goals changed a bit. So now I'll write about the current state of the blog and also some things to come. One of the most visited pages on … Continue reading My blogging goals.
When I wrote my first opinions on this blog I did it mostly to vent some criticisms related to the audiophile hobby. I was truly tired of not having a voice in the community. After being quiet for decades I had the need to stand my ground on controversial subjects, even if I had to … Continue reading If you enjoy your hobby write a blog.
Since my last article about the history of Beyerdynamic, I had very little free time for writing, after all this is a personal blog and I work night shifts, so inspiration is not really around the corner. On a very personal level some important things happened or are happening right now, so these days my … Continue reading Crazy collector prices in ebay and other strange occurrences.
I got one grip about using the .pt domain. I can’t anonymise the whois, lucky me that I gave my old address (still redirects to my new one) , even so my email is there and I can’t do much about it because I was under the impression that I could put my whois private … Continue reading My domain is up and running.
I got my own domain… 😀 I need to wait for some more things to put it up.
